Nice article. Thanks for posting it. A lot of what was mentioned I already knew, but I did learn some new stuff, such as Bloor riding around on a Triumph back in the day with his tools in the side car. That was pretty cool info.

That's a great article. I hope it gets reprinted somewhere in the States.

Then there was Arlo Guthrie's Running Down the Road album. The bike is a classic, although he probably doesn't wear the shirt anymore.

More Triumph/Thunderbird News!

In addition to that great article, the Speed Channel has an hour long show about Triumph called "Speedmakers". It is about Triumph, but largely it is about the production and attributes of the Thunderbird. Try and catch it, I get the Speed Channel on Direct TV.

That was a great episode! I watched it on demand a couple weeks ago. Fascinating how they make the crankshaft... LOVE the tech involved..!
